Snowshoeing (Canadian Tourism Commission photo)
Snowshoeing in the Thompson Okanagan takes place everywhere from ski resorts to the snowy backcountry of provincial parks.
The region's four major resorts – Apex, Big White, Silver Star and Sun Peaks – offer snowshoeing trails and guided tours, including night walks, spectacular sunsets and chocolate fondues. View stunning vistas at the family-friendly Mount Baldy ski area, or head to Wells Gray Provincial Park for backcountry experiences, including guided tours into this vast wilderness park.
Tours and equipment rentals are available at many of the larger snowshoe areas, and many outdoor stores also have rentals. Check with local Visitor Centres for trail maps and information.
